We’ve got lots of news this week for you all to read. Hope you enjoy!
In Oklahoma, Wilma Nelson survived a tornado that tore through her town – the second tornado she’s survived. The first one was in 1947; it ripped through the apartment she was living at. She hid under a table that time; unfortunately, many others died from that tornado. Recently, on Sunday, another tornado came. Wilma rushed to a closet, trying to get her son’s dog, Sugar, in with her; Sugar resisted and ran off. Mrs. Nelson closed the closet door, just in time, just as the roof was torn off, sounding ‘like a bomb went off’. She survived uninjured, and Sugar was found later under some insulation, completely fine. The front door was unscathed, a cookie jar filled with cookies and candy for her grandchildren was in perfect condition. It’s a wonderful story, isn’t it? That that cookie jar was fine, and that Sugar was fine…! Read full story here.
A 6-year-old in Georgia was handcuffed and taken to the police station after throwing a quite violent tantrum. She allegedly threw furniture, tore things off the walls, knocked over a shelf; the principal was injured from this. The girl’s parents are upset, saying that a 6-year-old shouldn’t be handcuffed. I disagree; if the kid is throwing such a fit that someone gets hurt, then handcuffs are perfectly fine! Though, I do wonder what made her angry…? Read full story here.
A lottery winner in Michigan was charged with welfare fraud, after she continued using food stamps, though her lottery prize was $1,000,000. She figured that she could continue using them because she didn’t work. Really, lady? You’ve got a million dollars! You don’t need food stamps! Read full story here.
